Babar Azam will Now Play Under the Captaincy of Muhammad Rizwan

Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam will now be led by wicketkeeper-batsman Muhammad Rizwan. Rizwan was named the new captain of Global T20 Canada League team Vancouver Knights on Sunday. In its social media release, the brand also gave Rizwan the honorary title of “Sir”.

“Hear, hear!” was the official statement from the Vancouver Knights. Sir Muhammad Rizwan selected by Vancouver Knights as their GT20 Season 4 captain? Knights, prepare for battle!

Along with Rizwan, several well-known players have also joined the Vancouver Knights: batsman Asif Ali, Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir, New Zealand’s Michael Rippon, South Africa’s Dwayne Pretorius, Namibia’s Ruben Trumpman and Guyana’s Jeremy Gordon.

The fourth season of GT20 Canada, which began on July 25, will conclude on August 11. Seven Pakistani players will participate in this event: Iftikhar Ahmed, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Babar Azam, Asif Ali, Muhammad Amir, Muhammad Rizwan, and Muhammad Nawaz. These players also participated for Pakistan in the T20 World Cup in 2024, but the team was soon eliminated.

Other international players including Carlos Brathwaite, David Warner, Rehmanullah Garbaz, Mohammad Nabi, Sunil Narine, Shakib Al Hasan, David Wiese and Hazratullah Zazai will also join the league. The defending champions of GT20 Canada are the Montreal Tigers, who won the title in 2023 by defeating the Vancouver Knights in the final. Mohammad Rizwan was a part of the Knights last year as well.
